BIG in Mental Health (Bury Involvement Group)
BIG in MENTAL HEALTH is a charity, run by people with their own experience of mental health problems. We provide a range free and open support groups for people experiencing mental health conditions within the community. Our service is open to anyone over the age of 18, from any area and requires no referral.
We have five support groups available, the Monday evening Anxiety and Depression Group, the Tuesday evening Recovery Group, the Friday midday Drop-In Group, and the Sunday midday Social Group. We also run a support group every Thursday at Fairfield Hospital, open to patients on the Psychiatric Ward, Irwell Unit.
All of our groups in the community are friendly and supportive. No referrals. No waiting lists. Just turn up.
What people say:
“BIG is my lifeline. It is a place where I can feel safe. I can meet with people who understand how I feel, who do not judge me and make me feel accepted and valued. I have gained a lot of knowledge and made several friends attending BIG.”
